We are now officially in baby proof mode. Over the weekend Ant figured out how to army crawl. Everyday he gets faster and explores the living room more. Sunday afternoon during his nap I went through and picked up everything I could think of in the living room. I took out all the magazines and moved furniture. My goal is our living room is going to be Ant's play area. We also bought two portable baby gates to block of the entrances to the room.
The funny thing about baby gates is my cats refuse to jump over them for now. I set them up today and while Ant and I napped. Hamilton and Athena just hung out in the living room. They could have easily jumped the gates but are two afraid to do so for now. I am hoping they get over this fear soon because there are a few gates I would like to leave shut.
Also, this is week one of being a single parent. DH is out of town for the whole month of October. I do have several friends who have offered to help but it is just different being the only caregiver. Usually when I would get home from work I could relax and play with Ant. Now I have to do dishes and prepare for the next day. Also after Ant goes to bed I need to pick up the house. If only there were a few more hours in the day.
I am happy to report my anxiety is better for now. Praying it stays away. Well it is off to bed for me.
